2. My dear backwoodsbob!

I am sorry to hear this. They probably wanted to be able to monitor you more closely in the hospital, plus you can get breathing treatments there as well as IV antibiotics.

Push fluids, and take it easy!

Use your eyedrops too.

I hope you get well quickly.

10. amazing what a night in the hospital can do for your mood :)

doc's confirmed I have pneumonia but feel a little better now

Temps under control and I can breathe a little better.They gave me some samples to hold me over till mrs backwoods gets to pharmacy.Got a steroid inhaler to help with breathing

B12 shots are awesome...instant energy

I feel rough but it looks like I will live to piss my wifes family off another day.

Bedrest and pampering for a few days for backwoods.Sorry about that Mrs backwoods

Thanks all for the vibes..feel less like I'm about to die this morning

11. A friend died from the flu yesterday!

This stuff can really get serious. He woke up feeling worse and went into convulsions and massive heart attack. Only in his sixties and otherwise fit and healthy as a horse. So sad..

13. Thanks...

I wonder if that's what made him go into convulsions, a high temp? Don't know all the details yet. I've been sick since Dec. 26. Went to urgent care Friday, said I have respiratory infection so I'm now on antibiotics. Scary being sick when you aren't a spring chicken anymore. Glad you are recovering!

15. temp would be my guess

temps at 105 or so become really dangerous.Convulsions and other problems including organs shutting down.

I got lucky.Hope you start feeling better

17. Also

some underlying coronary disease could have led to heart attack...We are all here dangling by a thread, so it seems..

I'm going to CVS for a flu shot tomorrow. Don't know why I've been putting it off. I hope it isn't too late.

14. Hey backwoodsbob....

PSA #113 : Got Lysol? Spray your keyboard, mouse laptop, phones...Basically anything you have touched in your house on a regular basis. You don't want a repeat of this wonderful experience.

18. woah

Wash your hands a lot. That stuff spreads like wildfire. That eye goo is full of virus. Clean your keyboard before anyone else touches it. Ah, Hell it goes through the air, too.
The suseptable catch it anyway.

Get well soon. Don't touch anything.
